    Hi all,

    i just got the A500, and first i loved it, but when the enegie level droped below29% i hooked it up to the charger but it did not do anything (would not charge even over night), does anyone know about this problem and how it could be fixed? i did test the charger with an electrical test probe but this seems fine.

    thanx in advance

    edit: i just returned from the shop and got a new one, nice service from Saturn, so my problem was solved, case closed ;-)

    I am pretty sure i did put it in the right socket!

    the weird thing is, that he did charge the first time but never again.
    i already sent acer a e-mail, so lets wait for an reaction, for now i hope its just something small and anyone knows how to fix it on androidtablets.net

    do u see a led blinking or what so ever when charging?

    Power it off, all the way off.
    Then plug it in and watch the power button. It should glow. Not blink.

    Report back what you find.

    I just recieved my Acer Iconia last night and it is having the same issue when i called TECH support they said it might be the power supply? So i am having a new power supply sent out to me. Did you get a new power supply or a new tablet?

    Please let me know if you were able to get it fixed... Thanks!
